Bachelor in Music Education (BME)

about

The Music program promotes an understanding and appreciation of musical expression as part of a liberal arts education. Increase your knowledge of theory and history across diverse musical cultures. Develop your abilities through ear-training, sight-singing, harmony, orchestration, composition, and conducting. You may also pursue an emphasis in applied music.

The education licensure program is designed to produce teachers who have the knowledge, social competencies, methods, communication skills, and sensitivity to be effective in the school environment. You will gain hands-on, in-classroom experiences. Prospective teachers learn how to identify and be sensitive to the unique needs, challenges and learning styles of diverse student populations.

The licensure program is based on state, regional, and national licensure criteria and testing competencies. The Ottawa University teacher education programs are state approved in Kansas and accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
